Love Lessons from The Bachelor: 5 Types of Women Who Get Dumped

It's official: The Bachelor's Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi are a couple. Now, we're not saying Tenley falls into one of these categories, but a lot of women on the reality show do. We got guys to spill why they dump girls they dig... even when there isn't a rose ceremony involved.


1. The Dryer Sheet.

She clings to her guy so tightly that no matter where he goes or who he's with he can't shake her loose. Guys crave freedom, so a Dryer Sheet chick can suffocate a man's style. Even if he tells you that he loves spending time with you or wants you around, consider backing off when you don't have to.


2. The Nutcase.
She heavily flirts with dudes in front of her guy to rile him up and likes screaming at him in public for things like making her go home after she passed out at the bar.
Men hate drama and don't want to feel like they're in an episode of "The Hills." No matter how fired up you are about something, keep your cool. Or else...!

3. The Full Discloser.

She tells her beau about her menstrual cycle, the eating habits of her three cats, and
how many guys she's slept with since losing her virginity at 17. It's nice to feel like your boyfriend is a best friend, but a little mystery goes a long way. There are just some things you should never tell him.

4. The Drama Queen.

She constantly tests her beau by threatening to break up with him. Then when he tries to dump her, she has a meltdown in the middle of the restaurant. This type sounds similar to The Nutcase, but is more emotional, rather than just psycho. If you feel like your relationship is a rollercoaster, consider analyzing why you go through these torturous, insecure moments. Chances are, you just need a little reassurance that your guy cares about you. Be upfront with your man and tell him you need consistent reassurance and affection.

5. The Timekeeper.

There's never enough "our time" for her; she pouts when her guy is with friends or works overtime. This type is similar to The Dryer Sheet, but can be more manipulative. How often do you give your guy guilt trips? If you're in the habit of keeping watch of his every move and getting upset when you're not numero uno on his priority list, you could be a Timekeeper. Busy yourself with other projects, honey.

We're dying to know what you think: Should Jake have picked Vienna?
